Can’t accept CAA, though the parliament passed it: Kerala CM

Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said, while moving a resolution in the assembly against CAA, that the act was against the secular outlook and fabric of the country.

Just because the parliament passed it, it is not appropriate from the stand of high democratic ideals to issue diktats to implement the act.

The constitution and its essence are more important, he said.

 With the passing of CAA, ideas that question the constitution and democratic values found legal validity.

Secularism is part of the basic structure of the constitution.

It cannot be destroyed by majority in both houses of parliament as said by the Supreme Court.

Giving control to any particular religion, or more consideration to any religion would harm secularism.

The religious discrimination in the Act created a wrong picture of the nation in the international community.

Considering the anxiety among the people of the country, the Centre should take steps to drop the CAA and uphold the secular outlook of the Constitution," he said.

Vijayan also ensured the Assembly that there wont be any detention centres in the state.
